FNSI

I joined Wendy from Sugarlane quilts and all the other ladies for the first FNSI of 2015.     During this warm spell of weather that we have been having I have only been sewing smaller items and took the opportunity to finish off my next themed table topper.      Seeing that Valentines Day is celebrated in  February I thought that something with hearts and flowers would look pretty on the dining room table.


I outlined around the hearts using my walking foot and by sewing slowly I was able to keep the curves a good shape.    I did some FMQ on the outside border.

I am pleased to say that I have been making some slow progress with all those strips of fabric that I cut up some months ago.     At this stage I am thinking that it will end up as a bed topper.   More on that later.

During the week hubs and I celebrated our 42nd wedding anniversary.     We took ourselves off to lunch at our favourite restaurant - Limani - for a delicious lunch and shared a bottle of bubbles with some nibbles for dinner that night.
I am going to do some blog hopping to see what everyone has been up to last night.

Have a good weekend and especially enjoy Australia Day.

Back soon and happy sewing in the meantime.

Hi Karen. Congratulations on a very productive FNSI. I love your table topper. I skimmed through your other posts as well and I must say I'm impressed with the bag you made for Grandma's day. It is well thought out and should keep you all organised on your days out. Happy anniversary - 42 years is wonderful - and Happy Australia Day! Hope you are having a great day. Cheers, Tracy.
